The Leading Residential VoIP Providers of 2014, Ranked by TheDigest.com

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/14 -- As technology continues to advance in today's society, telephone providers have discovered the most efficient and cost-saving ways to have quality telecommunication services. Residential VoIP, or voice over internet protocol, uses the internet to transmit phone signals instead of using landlines like traditional analog phones. By using cloud communications, residential VoIP providers are able to bring smooth, fast flowing phone services into your home with a wide range of features at prices cheaper than traditional phones. The experts at TheDigest.com have researched all aspects of VoIP services and have ranked the leading residential VoIP providers of the year as: ITP, Phone Power, VoIPo, Axvoice, and magicJack.

ITP

ITP is ranked as the best residential VoIP provider because they are extremely flexible. They strive to attract both business and residential customers so ITP provides a simple and straightforward package plan. They give customers a basic metered plan, at two-and-a-half cents a minutes for both home and business VoIP. For those who have a large call volume, they also provide scalable unlimited plans. So regardless of what telephone and fax needs you have, ITP is willing to work with users to make a customized plan. Customers don't even need to have a contract with ITP and they still give users hefty discounts.

Phone Power

Phone Power is very well known for their excellent residential VoIP rates. A company that provides anything and everything from a single-line residential package to a corporate call center, Phone Power offers super low rates with a long-term contract but also has inexpensive monthly packages for those who don't want as much of a long-term service. With every plan, Phone Power gives customers virtually unlimited calling with a threshold of 5,000 minutes a month.

VoIPo

With VoIPo, home phone lines cost $15 for a monthly contract or under $9 for a year-long contract. Their straightforward plan has led them to great customer satisfaction. A feature-heavy service, users enjoy unlimited calls to the US and Canada and a fair use limit of 5,000 minutes. Their service is quality and lets home phone users cut costs on monthly phone bills.

Axvoice

Axvoice is so confident in their premium service that there are no contracts needed and all new users receive a 15-day risk-free guarantee. They currently have a special promo offer of $6.25 per month available now. Their plan is the most economical residential calling plan available on the market and they work with users to accommodate any household's specific needs. They have great service and over 30 calling features for no extra cost.

magicJack

magicJack is an innovative and unique residential VoIP provider, putting them amongst the top 5 providers of the year.
